CC Price Protection?

A few items I bought from Sporting Life are already cheaper for boxing day prices online, from Canadian retailers

With my Capital One Aspire World Mastercard, I get the price protection but has anyone ever actually used it? Will they honor the "limited time" pricing and a store out in Vancouver (I'm in Toronto...)

Edit: And how does it work if there is also say a coupon code for 10% extra off - is that valid too?

WOw, didn't know there were CCs that offered this.

I have a scotiagold passport visa and was disappointed to learn it doesn't offer price protection.

You must complete and sign the Refund Form and include the following:
(i) the customer copy of Your sales receipt and a copy of the Account statement showing the charge;
(ii) the original vendor’s sales receipt; and
(iii) a dated advertisement/flyer to prove that the identical item was offered in Canada at the reduced price within 60 days of the date of Your purchase.

How do you get the vendor's copy of the receipt?

I think they mean your original receipt from the "higher price" purchase

That's most likely what they mean.
Back in the day when Citi Cards had Price Protection provided by a Toronto company, you could simply just send an email to the CEO (or whatever his actual title was) for clarification/prior approval. Not exactly sure, but I think they would treat the coupon as a 'rebate'?

And the 3 item limit is if you're price matching 3 identical items to a lower price. Similar to SCOP IIRC
Regarding snowboarding gear...what did you buy more than three off? :P
